  • For example, at Stanford researchers have built “neuromorphic microchips” whose circuitry self-organizes to resemble the visual cortex of lab animals.

    World Wide Mind

  • Now Kwabena Boahen, a neuroengineer at Stanford University, is planning the most ambitious neuromorphic project to date: creating a silicon model of the cortex.

    Silicon Brains

  • As a result, the Air Force researchers were able to use that power to run applications such as the back-projection synthetic aperture radar imaging formation, high-definition video image processing, and neuromorphic computing, a method of replicating human nervous systems.

  • That chip, known as the RF (radio frequency) cochlea, is an example of "neuromorphic electronics," a 20-year-old field founded by Carver Mead, Sarpeshkar's thesis advisor at Caltech. - latest science and technology news stories

  • Sarpeshkar's expansion from neuromorphic to cytomorphic electronics is based on his analysis of the equations that govern the dynamics of chemical reactions and the flow of electrons through analog circuits. - latest science and technology news stories

  • The Air Force said the PS3 Cell processor has shown strong potential for applications such as high-definition video image processing and "neuromorphic computing," which mimics the neuro-biological architecture of the human nervous system.


  • Information Week, the US Air Force will use Sony's Cell-powered hardware for radar imagery, HD video processing and "neuromorphic computing" or, to those of us without a PhD in Armageddon-ology, "building computers with brain-like properties."

    Joystiq [PlayStation]

  • They use the consoles for multiple radar image and high-def video processing, plus research into "neuromorphic computing" - building computers which act like real brains.


  • The most interesting application of all for the PlayStation 3 though is new research into neuromorphic computing. Feed
